Chrisanne Gordon, M.D. Shares her Journey of Recovery and Passion for TBI Education
Most physicians treat patients who suffer from conditions they only studied in medical school. Chrisanne Gordon, M.D., not only treats patients with Traumatic Brian Injuries (TBI), she suffered from one in 1996. In order to assist patients struggling with this condition, she has written about her experiences in “Turn the Lights On!: A Physician’s Personal Journey from the Darkness of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) to Hope, Healing, and Recovery.”
Released on Jan. 4, 2018, the book chronicles her experience of living with a traumatic brain injury and her commitment to developing better diagnostic techniques and therapies while educating medical personnel on utilizing those treatments. Most significantly, she hopes that “Turn the Lights On!” will bridge the communication hap between TBI patients, their loved ones, caregivers, and health care providers. “I know what it feels like to be out of your brain, and I also know the path back,” Gordon says.
